Total energy consumption (all sources, excluding transportation fuels), performance year :
364,859 MMBtu

Total clean and renewable electricity generated on site during the performance year and for which the institution retains or has retired the associated environmental attributes:
0 MMBtu

A brief description of on-site renewable electricity generating devices :

On its south side, the Noel Fine Arts Center has its own 18-window photovoltaic panel. The panel captures light energy from the sun and uses it to light parts of the Fine Arts Center inner courtyard area. Each of the 18 windows produces about 900 - 1,200 watts of electricity on a sunny day.


Non-electric renewable energy generated on-site, performance year:
0 MMBtu

A brief description of on-site renewable non-electric energy devices:

Five of our residentail living halls, Burroughs Knutzen, Neale, Suites@201 and Pray-Sims, are equipped with solar panels that serve to heat all of the water in the buildings.


Total clean and renewable electricity generated by off-site projects that the institution catalyzed and for which the institution retains or has retired the associated environmental attributes, performance year:
0 MMBtu

A brief description of off-site, institution-catalyzed, renewable electricity generating devices:

n/a


Total third-party certified RECs, GOs and/or similar renewable energy products (including renewable electricity purchased through a utility-provided certified green power option) purchased during the performance year:
183,665 MMBtu

A brief description of the RECs, GOs and/or similar renewable energy products, including contract timeframes:

Renewable Choice RECs are 100% wind power. 3-year contract The State of WI purchases renewable energy as part of Act 141. Green kwh is allocated to UW-Stevens Point based on consumption.
